Normandy Sand Cake
Cake flour, sifter
Unsalted butter, softened
Grated lemon peel
Sift the flour, baking powder and nutmeg together. Cream butter and
sugar until thick and creamy, about 5 minutes on medium speed. Add
eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the flour
mixture alternately with the Madeira, beginning and ending with the
flour mixture, and beating well after each addition. Stir in the
lemon rind. Pour batter into a well greased and floured loaf pan.
Bake in a pre heated 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes or until cake
tests done. Let cake cool in pan for 5 minutes, then turn out onto
rack to cool completely. Dust with confectioners sugar before
serving. This goes well with a Sabayon Sauce.
